Joe Dolan and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra release “Orchestrated, Vol. 1”

Universal Music Ireland are delighted to announce the release of ‘Orchestrated, Vol.1’ – a collection of Joe Dolan’s biggest hits re-recorded with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra. The album, set for release on October 21st, features Joe’s original vocal accompanied by the 45 piece orchestra.

This album is a side of Joe Dolan you never knew, his voice given a bigger canvas with more colours. Classics like 'You're Such a Good Looking Woman' now sound like a James Bond theme. The Burt Bacharach-penned 'The Answer to Everything' and 90’s hit 'Ciara' sound new and reinvigorated, with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra creating an exhilarating accompaniment, bringing Joe's unmistakable vocals and the well-known tracks to new heights.

One of Joe’s more recent hits, The Universal, released in the late 90’s, has finally been given the orchestral treatment it deserved. The song has undoubtedly become Joe’s own, with its creators, the UK band Blur, acknowledging this when playing to a festival crowd of over 50,000 in Ireland in 2009 dedicating it ‘to the late, great Joe Dolan’.

The album includes a duet with Ireland’s biggest country music star Nathan Carter. Nathan jumped at the chance to record 'Make Me An Island'. His vocals are shared with Joe's to create a moving, spiritual rendition of the much-loved classic. The album also features a previously unreleased recording of the old Irish song ‘Foggy Dew’ – a track Joe was working on with his nephew Adrian Dolan before his untimely death.

The RTÉ Concert Orchestra were conducted on the album by Joe Csibi who has worked with everyone from Kodaline to Sinead O'Connor and most recently headed up the team to compose, conduct, arrange and produce the orchestral sound track for RTÉ's programme "Centenary". He employed a most experienced team, and among the many seasoned players on the album is Bill Shanley, well known for his work with Ray Davies of The Kinks.

To accompany the release of ‘Orchestrated, Vol. 1’, a documentary has been commissioned based on Joe’s career and features interviews with Joe’s family, his long term manager Seamus Casey and Albert Hammond who famously co-wrote two of Joe’s hits ‘Make Me An Island’ and ‘You’re Such A Good Looking Woman’. The documentary is due to broadcast on RTE later this year.


Robbie Williams: Heavy Entertainment Show -Releasing on 4th Nov!





The incredible ROBBIE WILLIAMS releases his brand new studio album “Heavy Entertainment Show” on Columbia Records on November 4.

The album is Robbie’s first to be released through Sony Music and follows a string of 11 UK chart-topping albums, a tally only matched by Elvis Presley. Robbie’s last solo No. 1 album “Swings Both Ways” was also the 1000th album to reach the top of the UK charts.

Robbie said –

“I was musing over the phrase ‘light entertainment’ - all the huge TV shows from when I was a kid, 30 million people watching them, this huge shared experience of these moments called light entertainment.  Sometimes it can be leveled at people in a bad way, but for me that’s heavy entertainment. That’s what I’m hoping to do with this album – to have a shared experience with millions of people though the medium of light entertainment…but on steroids.”

Sting’s New Album: 57th & 9th – Out 11th November

Now available for pre-order, 57th & 9threpresents a wide range of Sting’s musical and songwriting styles, from the ferocious, Road Warrior-style imagery of “Petrol Head,” to the anthemic, “50,000” and the raucous, guitar-driven first single, “I Can’t Stop Thinking About You.” The album was recorded with Sting’s long-time collaborators Dominic Miller (guitar) and Vinnie Colaiuta (drums) and includes contributions from drummer Josh Freese (Nine Inch Nails, Guns n’ Roses), guitarist Lyle Workman and the San Antonio-based Tex-Mex band The Last Bandoleros. Riding a wave of inspiration, 57th & 9thcame together impulsively, with sessions completed in just a few weeks.

“It happened very quickly, very spontaneously,” he says. “My idea always is to surprise myself and the people I'm working with—and, hopefully, the listeners.”

The album, produced by Martin Kierszenbaum, takes its title from the Manhattan street corner that Sting crossed each day as he walked to the studios in Hell’s Kitchen where the recordings were done. Sting notes that if there’s a theme in the lyrics of 57th & 9th, it’s the idea of travel and motion, most apparent in the autobiographical “Heading South On The Great North Road” and in “Inshallah,” a first-person account of the global refugee crisis, written from a humanitarian point of view.

“It’s about searching and traveling, the road, that pull of the unknown.” he says. “On this album, we ended up with something that’s energetic and noisy, but also thoughtful.”
